I love his mindset. He accepts the things he has no influence on as they are and just tries to do his best in the given circumstances. That kind of attitude is one of the reasons why he is such a great athlete.
🍶 Did Rafa strategically place those bottles each side of the desk? 😂

Roland Garros should follow Wimbledon and adopt its ranking system. Medvedev awful on clay and seed no. 2 in front of Nadal? Ridiculous!

Do you really know why Nadal doesn’t care about this ranking ‘charade’ even if it’s 100% unfair? BECAUSE HE IS THE REAL NUMBER ONE. The rest of the tennis players are the ones that have to worry about facing Nadal hahahahahahahhshs 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

The modernization of the Roland Garros stadium with a new roof is a good step to improve the quality of the tournaments that take place there. However it is important to caution that the introduction of new improvements or technology has to be properly synchronized to maintain the validity of the game and results obtained by the competitors. For example it obvious that the French open grand slam is an outdoor event. Question is when do you, and under what circumstances is the roof to be used. If so, for how long? The tournament offices should be careful not to 'indoorlize' the tournament. There was an unfortunate event that happened not too long ago at the Wimbledon 2018 tournament when Nadal and Djokovic played in the semi finals stage. The Wimbledon tournament organizers had scheduled two semi final matches on the same day. The first one between K. Anderson(8) and J. Isner(9) and the second one between R. Nadal(2),(ATP 1) and N. Djokovic(11), (ATP 21) of which there was no specific start time but to start at the end of the first match. The first match lasted 6hrs and 30min and by the time the second match started it was already very dark and gloomy and rain was strongly forecasted. As an emergency the roof was closed to start the match. However the match was interrupted and cut short and postponed to the following day just after one set. Then on resumption of the match the following day the tournament officials refused to open the roof on the misguided assumption that the match was "started" with the roof closed and then had to be completed with the roof closed. The stupid mistakes of those decisions that year was however corrected when they changed and corrected the "rules" as soon as the tournament ended.
The Wimbledon tournament is reputed to be an outdoor event. Anyone in their right frame of mind would have expected the roof to be used only for emergency situations and and the resumed games to be continued in open roof if there was good weather, and not for the closed roof to be used as a matter of routine. Unfortunately in that case the playing an indoor-game with roof took precedent over the basic foundation of the tournament as an outdoor tennis tournament.
There are also some other unfortunate observations at that tournament that are noticed. The No 1 ATP rank player at that time was R. Nadal and yet the tournament officials demoted him to no. 2 seed. The fact is that the French Open and Wimbledon tournaments are scheduled too close to each other and players may not fully be ready for the next grand slam tournament. And if a player is always in the finals of the first French open, it is likely going to have an effect their performances in the next Wimbledon tournaments. The other deplorable observation at the Wimbledon 2018 semifinal was the fact that the highest ranking ATP player R. Nadal(2) and N. Djokovic(11) were forced to wait for probably over 5 hours loitering and walking around aimlessly on the grounds of the Wimbledon complex not knowing what next or what time for anything. The aimless loitering or walking around in my opinion is probably more energy sapping than being fully engaged in a regular match. That is completely disgusting that lower ranked players would be scheduled to play in nice weather conditions having uninterrupted matches while higher ranked players are slated to start their matches in the dead of the night under very bad weather conditions with interruptions and postponement of matches. It defies logic. In any ordinary company in other works of life higher ranked staff get to get the best shifts like morning or afternoon while low rank junior staff get the night shifts. In Wimbledon grounds at that time of the year the starting times of about 1 pm is actually the best times to start playing big matches because there is always high chance of bad weather when the sun is going down. Also the players who play their match first know their start time and manage their preparations and energy efficiently. They also have the advantage of getting more rest for the finals. In my own opinion for a just and appropriate time schedule of matches, the higher ranked players deserve their matches scheduled to be play first at the best time of the day that when there are high chances of good weather and best natural lighting conditions. Another options would be to have the men's two men's semi-final scheduled on Friday and Saturday mornings maybe starting at about 10 am or 11 am or the other option would be to schedule the matches to be played concurrently at two separate courts. This would ensure equity and justice in general.
Some past tournaments that had some serious concerns about providing an equal level playing field for all the players. It is therefore important to caution the tournament organizers to avoid making mistakes that have been made in the past.
